'Twilight' series screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg says 'Breaking Dawn' is still up in the air
In hopes that The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse will be followed up by The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, readers of this column have been wedding dress shopping for Bella, pushing for Chris Weitz to come back as the director for the film, hanging onto Boo Boo Stewart's suggestion that it might be made into two films, gauging potential Renesmees for the film(s), and enjoying fan-made Breaking Dawn film posters to boot.
Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg, however, has stated to E! Online that whether or not Breaking Dawn will be made into film is still "up in the air" at this time. While she did say that a conversation about the potential film is being had by her and, presumably, film studio Summit Entertainment, there has been no official decision.
All hope is not lost, though, for the project - at all. In fact, you might recall Peter Facinelli's words about the project - words which, in essence, show the pragmatic approach taken by Summit in deciding whether the film will make it to cinematic fruition. Whether Twilight fans are still on board with their pocketbooks to support the project and make it a financially viable option is probably a key factor in the decision. Chances are, New Moon's box office showing will do the trick.
So, until then, you know the drill. Nothing is official until it is official - meaning, fans should await an announcement from Summit before jumping to one conclusion or the other about The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.
